Luisa Lavina's story

Sra. Luisa Lavina P. S. is 56 years old and lives with her family in the neighborhood of Medardo Andino. Her husband is an employee of MAGFOR (Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry) and contributes toward the household income. Her grown children are working and also help with the expenses. Luisa works as a secretary at Universidad Americana (UAM).

Since her family has limited resources, Luisa is not able to finish all the necessary renovations to her house which include replacing the sheets of zinc roofing and tiling the living room floor. For this reason, she is requesting a loan to buy the construction materials needed to complete these improvements so that her family can live in a space that is more dignified, safer, and more comfortable. As parents, Luisa and her husband want to provide good conditions in which her children can develop.
